Mia Moves Out

(2) K-3 Illustrated by Paige Keiser. After baby Brandon joins the family, Mia must share her room, and it's "twice as fun!" But as Brandon gets bigger, there's "twice the mess." Spirited illustrations soften but don't stifle Mia's emotions. Fed up Mia moves out, eventually settling into a blanket fort by the bookcase...but something--or someone--is missing. The text's light tone and warm pictures portray a loving nontraditional family allowing its members to work through frustrations.
